There are countless reasons to be excited about what God is doing in and through the Brentwood Hills family – and here’s just one of them:
Among college students preparing for mission trips, Brentwood Hills has a wonderful reputation. Every year about this time, hundreds of area students work hard to raise the necessary funds for upcoming Spring Break mission trips – trips that serve the Lord in a variety of locations and in many different countries.
“Word on the street” (or “on area campuses”) is that Brentwood Hills is willing to help by providing a portion of the needed funds to any student who asks – even for those students who do not regularly attend Brentwood Hills. I am thrilled to confirm that the “word on the street” is accurate!
Perry Moore, a deacon who serves on our very active Missions Ministry team, has been responsible for coordinating this impactful aspect of our missions program since 1998. It’s a time-consuming responsibility for Perry who schedules a meeting with each student to learn more about the plans for their trip and to encourage them. In the past 13 years at least 1,400 students have received help from Brentwood Hills – and only God could possibly calculate the life-transforming impact of this financial investment!
So far this year, Brentwood Hills is assisting a total of 139 students and team leaders who will travel to 18 different locations in 9 countries. Some of these students will be with us tonight for our service at 6:00 p.m. All of us will be able to partner with them and our elders for a special prayer before they leave on their missions at the end of the week.
Research and experience confirm that a mission trip is one of the most significant faith-building opportunities for any of us – and especially for young people. How wonderful to be part of a church family that not only believes mission trips change lives but also puts that faith into action!
Tonight’s special prayer, an inspiring time of worship in song, and an “extremely healthy” story about oatmeal (that has nothing to do with eating oatmeal) will highlight a service tonight you won’t want to miss!
